Where has this been all my life?
By Stephen Axsom
I come from a crazy family of eleven. Physical abuse was normal, emotional abuse and spiritual abuse as well. I have stayed busy duplicating the system I hated in my own adult life, and only have three and a half months sobriety under my belt today from my multiple addictions.
How I wish I could have read this book a decade ago and how grateful I am for it today!
This book gave me much needed directions toward breaking the cycle of abuse and giving my daughter a chance at a safe childhood.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Irene, for sharing your story with me. I am just starting to allow myself to feel emotions, so it was not a small milestone that I broke down and cried at the end of three different chapters.
This book is real, this book is honest, this book offers hope that your family can be different.
This book had me glued to my phone... You'll find out things about yourself you had no idea were there. Genius! Made me change my perspective on a lot of things. Thanks Irene!!!
I related with Irene's story so much. I feel that I have made healthy boundaries with my 23 yr old daughter. Thank u Irene!

I just finished this book and it really hit home. I'm a brand new mom, constantly questioning and wanting to do everything right for my growing daughter. I had rough time growing up with my family, and I'm striving to make sure hers is different. This book has definitely helped me put some things into perspective.
Very insightful book
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author presented her story in a way that I could live in it and identify with some of the emotional challenges she faced. I particularly loved her ending "Own your own story" as advice to all of the readers. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends.
